My Life

We are the all-singing, all-dancing, crap of the world

Let's just say luck is one of my finer points. Or one that dooms me. Or one that vexes my mind so perplexingly that I have vivid dreams at night.

Allow me to introduce myself: I am Benjamin Novotny. Here are a few things I think anyone who may want to friend me should know:

*I hate the place where I live - Enid, Oklahoma. But my living situation will change soon because...
*I am a student of International Security Studies and Mandarin Chinese. In Fall 2011, I'll start studying at the University of Oklahoma - Where, regretfully, I passed up the opportunity to see former Secretary of Defense, Robert Gates, with my own two eyes.
*I tend to rage-write sometimes, more particularly about some things people say or do that make me angry.
*I am a bit of complex character. You see, I feel I have an obligation to serve the United State's Constitution, but at the same time I do not think I could start a family here. In my opinion, it's too dangerous to raise kids in America. There are more free societies with lower crime rates where I could do that.
*I am an avid advocate of education, but also experience.
*I value my rights and freedoms as an American. This is not the best country in the world, per se, but I know first-hand that I'm better off here than I am in some other places.
*In case you haven't been able to tell, I have a soft spot for just about anything Asian.
*If you ask me, "Where'd you learn to speak oriental?", "Where'd you learn to speak Asian?" or "Where'd you learn to speak Japanese?", I will shut that conversation down in a heartbeat and I can't promise being nice about it either.
